A superb 17th century oil on canvas portrait by the celebrated female English painter, Mary Beale (1633-1699).  This portrait was, at one time, believed to be a self portrait of this fascinating artist, who trained under Sir Peter Lely and was clearly influenced by his Italianate style and palette...

A very fine and very pretty Louis XVI period gilt bronze small bust of Flora (Spring) on her original grey-painted and part gilded neoclassical wooden plinth.  France circa 1785.

A wonderful large-scale marble bust of Antinous dating from the late 18th / early 19th century.  The bust has clearly been outside and was once part of a fountain; it has an incredible 'ruin' patina from 200 years of weather and water.

 Four exquisite 18th century Italian silver and gilt salon chairs in the neoclassical taste, circa 1775, upholstered in a beautiful, time-worn 19th century watermelon pink silk velvet.
